~Tuesday Jan 22nd "An Intro To Sound Healing" a crystal bowl sound healing experience 6-8pm, $25 led by Katie Bernard. The Benefits of Healing with Crystal Singing Bowls. Vibrational sound healing can be traced back from present day trends to many ancient civilizations including India, Africa, Europe, and the Orient. In addition, each culture had unique approaches specific to their region and beliefs. Bells, chimes, bowls, gongs, drums and vocal toning, chants or repetitive sound vibrations are only a few of the many vibrational sound tools that can be used for healing. In Ancient Egypt vowel sounds were chanted in specific keys to clear and restore balance to the chakra system. Atlantans combined sound with crystals to enhance healing. Healers today may use a combination of techniques to assist in healing.
~Sat Jan 26th "Saturday Somatics" w/E RYT 500, Dan Weiseman 1-3pm Early Bird Price $25. While not yoga, Somatics can we a wonderful compliment to any yoga practice as well as a way to offer relief to chronic aches and pains in the body. Somatics begins with the belief that everything we experience in our lives is a bodily experience. "During the course of our lives our sensory-motor systems continually respond to daily stresses and traumas with specific muscular reflexes. These reflexes, repeatedly triggered, create habitual muscular contractions which we cannot -- voluntarily -- relax. These muscular contractions have become so deeply involuntary and unconscious that, eventually, we no longer remember how to move about freely. The result is stiffness, soreness and a restricted range of motion."--Thomas Hannah, Somatics creator
